I'm just curious: why do you want to ditch dbw so bad?
I love it on many of the cars that I tune.

I drive all kinds of brand new cars at work from Mustangs to Accents and they all have their quirks and none of them feel like they have the response of a cable driven unit. They always have a delay in acceleration or a delay when letting off the gas.

Plus I may decide to run ITB in the future.

Well yeah, most dbw cars do that, but that's why you tune it.
If set up correctly, it can be really cool, and even more precise than cable because the car is not reacting from tps inputs but actually anticipating throttle inputs

No sorry. :( All i seem to have left is a set or two of F2T injectors, a ratty gross set of FC 460s, and a not-very-well-matched set of RC550s.
